about that universe thing

I got a job.

The job I wanted.

A job that pays more than I've ever made (although that's not saying much).

A job that is a 25 minute commute through quiet country roads instead of between two busy cities. (Ask me how much I love my quiet commute in February).

A job where I can bring my child to work with me.

A job in a non-profit centre, that's still growing.

A job where I can walk down country roads on my lunch break.

A job that allows me to keep this roof over my head, food on the table and financial independence for the first time in my life.

A job that means a lot to me, but not as much as my family, my kids, and my writing. I'll still have lots of time for the important things.

Congratulations -- I'll bet you feel wonderful, good for you.

I feel great. Thanks.

When I was laid off last March, we decided that I would stay home with Emily and do home-like things. I enjoyed being home, but when we separated, I realized that being completely dependent on another person's income is not a good thing. I'll never go there again.

I feel like I've found the missing piece of the puzzle that is my new life.

Congratulations that's great to hear. I'm very happy for you! It really seems like things are moving in a positive direction in your life now. It must feel good to get that kind of reinforcement from the universe that you are making the right decisions for yourself and following your heart.
